save graph as file

sorry for this stupid queestion: how do I save my graphs, for example my scatter plot, as an image in a file ?
Using the export option, I don’t only get the graph but also the whole window, with all the buttons, options like when you do a screenshot. Is there another way ?
I am using the MacOSX version, on 10.5.8 - maybe it is due to that ?

No, the export currently only saves the whole window. You need to use an image program to cut away the rest. One thing, which I personally find a very nice feature, is the SVG export once the BIRT-Feature is installed. This lets you scale the exported views to any size, creates PDFs of them, …

once the BIRT-Feature is installed

How? When? Where? :slight_smile: Current reporting module is rather lacking…


This is what I did (use image program). I thought I had missed something

Hi Ergonomist,

give us a few more weeks - the Report Designer will be availabe at the end of November. We are currently heavily testing it. You will then be able to use the BIRT Report Editor together with KNIME workflows for data integration, transformation, aggregation, …

Cheers, Michael

On Mac OS X the shortcut Cmd-Shift-4 is a convenient way to capture a selected area of the screen. This saves you the hassle of cropping the image afterwards but is limited to png.

Woo, great news! :slight_smile:


Hi p.

I am also running MacOSX 10.5.8 - I know this is a 32-bit OS. Are there any  problems running a 64-bit application on a 32-bit OS?



Hi Alf,

the important point is that you have Java 1.6 (64 bit) installed. You can check this by running the application /Applications/Utilities/Java

Leopard (Mac OS X 10.5.x) is fine. Any Mac that is not older than about 4 years should be able to handle 64 bit and get the Java update to this version automatically.
